Your request

You requested for information on the following:  (1) Population of abandoned children per region. 

Response to your request

The DSWD only has limited information on to those abandoned children residing in its centers and institutions and those who are community based served by the DSWD. Thus, we shall partially grant your request and we shall refer your request with respect to this matter to the proper DSWD office.

Under Republic Act 10625 (the “Philippine Statistical Act of 2013”), the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is the government agency responsible for preparing and conducting periodic censuses on population, housing, agriculture, fisheries, business, industry and other sectors of the economy. The PSA may have the complete data you need.  Hence, you may wish to direct your request to the PSA by submitting a request to the PSA via this portal. You may also contact the PSA by telephone at 462-6600 locals 839, 833 and 834 or via email at info@psa.gov.ph. 

Respectfully,
